Wentworth Maintains #12 Ranking in U.S. News & World Report
Boston, MA – September 10, 2013 – Wentworth Institute of Technology has been ranked by U.S. News & World Report in two categories as part of the publication’s Best Colleges 2014 rankings. Wentworth maintained its ranking of #12 in the “Regional College North” category and moved up to #64 (from #69) for the “Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs (where doctorate not offered)” category, representing the fourth consecutive year the Institute has placed in the top 100.
The 203 regional colleges that comprise the “Regional College North” rankings “focus on undergraduate education but grant fewer than half their degrees in liberal arts disciplines.” Regional Colleges are placed into one of four geographic categories: North, South, Midwest, and West.
The Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs ranking was for accredited programs whose highest engineering degree offered is a bachelor’s or master’s. These undergraduate engineering programs were ranked solely on a peer assessment survey conducted in spring 2013.
